This is an open invitation to any Hunter Valley-based practitioners (nurses, allied health and others) - working in any setting - who are using complementary and "alternative" approaches in their work, and who would like to explore the possibility of forming a network with other professionals working in similar ways and facing similar issues.

(2) Mainstream practitioners working in non-mainstream settings (e.g. Anthroposophical Doctors, Steiner teachers, Birth Centre Midwives,Nurses in private practice, etc)
